  • Description

    The Windjammer at sea. Sun rays through dark clouds. The men carry the dead hero along the deck. We see the helmsman with the real name of the ship "Grace Harwar". The hero is laid on the deck and a service is held. They sing a hymn and the body is dropped over the side. Dramatic sky seen through the rigging.
    Below decks a sailor checks through the dead mans belongings, and underneath his name carved on the table he adds " A fine bloke". He is clearly distressed.
    Various shots of the ship sailing on. Below decks the men sing. More shots of sailing from the top masts looking down through the sails. On the back rail a dial measures the ships progress as it moves through the water.
    A light house on a rocky outcrop. The ship in full sail at dusk. The Windjammer moored
    alongside the quay. A man goes down the gang plank carrying the dead hero's mandolin. The crew walk past the ship as they leave. A policeman watches them and stops the sailor with the mandolin. As they talk they look at the bow of the ship. The wheel is deserted, the ropes neatly hang from the base of the mast. Across the deserted decks we see a stream ship moored in front. As the sailor walks away the Windjammer lays alone by the quayside.
